How I Stole The Emmy from the Leading Competition

Saturday night I did the John Edwards thing and Twittered from the Emmys to keep all the NGIP fans up to date on the latest celebrity sighting, LIVE, as it was happening. I Twittered every 60 seconds, I couldn’t keep up with it all. Eventually I gave up from finger cramps after about two minutes, but BOY! Were you instantly informed there for a while.

First of all, I was wrong about the lack of paparazzi, the place was lousy with ’em.
This is Erin, the co-executive producer for TNGIPVRH  (The Nanny Goats In Panties Virtual Reality Hour) on the red carpet. Poor Erin, none of the paparazzi wanted to take a picture of her, so I kindly offered to shout “Erin! Over here, Erin! Who are you wearing?” and snapped a photo:
Does anybody recognize the two little elfin mop tops in the back? Because for some reason the papas were all over them.

I did manage to walk past Sharon Gless on the red carpet. At least I recognized ONE person. Sheesh! Unfortunately, when I tried to take a picture of her, a couple of her body guards manhandled me like Sean Penn. (Which I suppose for some women, wouldn’t be a bad thing)

Rumor had it that it was going to be a a long ceremony. This photo was taken just before entering the theatre and some people came prepared.

This is the inside of the new Nokia Theatre where the Rat’s Ass Emmys were held (and will be held next week for the real Prime Time Emmys:

After the ceremony, we were led to the Convention Center next door for the Governor’s Ball, where each guest was greeted with a box of big ass chocolate candy bars in their chair (and the first course of shrimp salad, which of course led me to wonder….’How long has that shrimp been sitting there on that room-temperature table?

Then the main course where there was more shrimp, some meat thing with mushrooms and asparagus and fried Mac-n-Cheese. Mmmmmm….mac-n-cheese – that’s what I’m talkin’ about. None o’ this fancy schmancy basil-brushed tenderloin in a wine reduction sauce topped with a smashed red thingy:

And for dessert, “diamonds” of something:

The band and diamond encrusted, Emmy-themed ballroom:

Some woman complimented me on my dress. It was all I could do not to tell her who I was wearing (Dress Barn $39.99). See? People just assume; you’re at a swanky ball, so it must be some hideously expensive designer get-up.

And that was pretty much it….

Oh yeah! You’re probably wondering if I won an Emmy for The Nanny Goats In Panties Virtual Reality Hour.

Does this answer your question?

No? Well what if I tell you that that’s me in the picture, then does it answer your question?

    Yeah so thats you in the photo… but did you win?

  23. Oooooooh, shiny …….

  24. Thanks for the Emmy Twitters. That sort of sounds like a disease, now, doesn’t it? Anyway…Congrats on the award. Now don’t go getting a big head and forget us “little people”.

  25. Damn, I leave a message about how confused I am and then it goes to that page that tells you “sorry but all your words just…good luck remembering what you wrote the first time” which I don’t. Swanky dress, though and is that your real smile or is that your cheesy award winning grin?

  26. Preston says:

    OMG! You’re famous! You’re a really famous person and not one of those pseudo, self-hyped reality star wannabe famous person types either. I’ve got goosebumps! Gee, the only other famous person I’ve met was Cher but that’s a terribly long story that involves an ex with tatoos…

  27. Sounds like so much fun! Why didn’t you ask me to be your date? I like shrimp. And diamonds. Maybe I like diamonds more than shrimp. In any case, I would have made a fun date.

  28. Jamie says:

    You publicty hussy!! Congrats, but next year I do believe you should take me along. I could help you tear that place up, well that or get us arrested. It just would be a publicty stunt. Then we could blog and twitter from jail!? Now ask yourself..has that been done?? Nope we would be pioneers (insert evil laugh)
    No but really…congrats

  29. Mojo says:

    Yay NGIP!!! Wow, can I rub elbows with you? Perhaps just virtual elbows??? What fun! This is as close as I’m likely to get to being there..thanks for sharing the experience.

  31. Jenn says:

    Ah Fame… Thanks for the behind-the-scenes tour, Margaret, and congrats on your Emmy. Pretty soon you will be too good to talk to the rest of us. 🙂
    By the way, tell us– how was the chocolate? 🙂

  32. ByJane says:

    who did you swipe that statue from, NGIP???? The law’s after you…

  33. Erin says:

    I’ve got the same photo (in fact, two) of you on the red carpet – the papparazzi must have been on a union break. Gearing up for Tom Hanks’ arrival…

  34. Brittany says:

    I want to say YAY! to the Emmy, but I am too hungry for the shrimp!
    Did you meet Kathy Griffin?

  35. Tricia says:
